1

Which muscles affect the perceived lumbar ROM?

Upper back, Lower back, Hamstrings, and Gastrocnemius

2

What is the basic procedure for measuring the flexion/extension of the lumbar spine?

Place inclinometer on T12 and S1, have the patient go into flexion and extension (same for lateral flexion), and measure the distances of change.

3

How many different measurements do you need for lumbar inclinometry?

3 separate measurements that are within 10% of each other or 5 degrees. (use the highest of the 3)

4

What are the normal numbers for lumbar ROM?

Flexion- 60 degree; Extension- 25 degree; Lateral flexion- 25 degree

5

What is the basic procedure for measuring cervical ROM?

place the inclinometer on the top of their head and T1, have them go into flexion and extension (same for lateral flexion) , then take the change in degrees. Still need 3 measurements within 10% or 5 degrees.

6

What is different about the cervical rotation measurement?

The patient is laying down, so you only need one measurement. Still need 3 measurements within 10% or 5 degrees.

7

What are the normal values for Cervical inclinometry?

Flexion- 60 degrees; Extension- 75 degrees; Rotation- 80 degrees; Lateral flexion- 45 degrees
